KOTA Energy Group is a solar broker company that connects customers with top-rated solar installers and other solar professionals who provide a variety of solar services and products. The company has three locations — Camarillo, California (corporate headquarters); Las Vegas, Nevada; and Antelope Valley, California.
According to the company’s website, KOTA Energy Group works with several financing partners including Sunlight, Sunrun, Renew Financial, Loanpal, and more. KOTA Energy Group helps customers make a solar purchase, obtain a solar loan, or get a solar power purchase agreement (PPA). It appears that KOTA Energy Group focuses on four main areas including solar systems, battery storage systems, home automation systems, and roofing work.
According to the KOTA Energy Group website, the company offers several services including consultation, site assessment, electrical work, engineering, permit submission, finance approval, installation, net-metering application, utility inspection, city inspection coordination, permission to operate, and system turn-on. The company website also states that customers who purchase a solar system and those who obtain a solar loan will receive a 25-year product and power output warranty. Each solar energy system also comes with system monitoring.

Read on to learn more about the pros and cons of KOTA Energy Group’s solar services and products.
KOTA Energy Group gives potential customers the opportunity to request a custom quote via a consultation. In order to request this consultation, consumers simply need to visit the company’s website and fill out the custom quote request form.
This form asks for the consumer’s name, email address, cell phone number, and current address or zip code. Additionally, the form has a section where consumers can provide additional information that they think the company should know before the consultation is scheduled.
The company does not, however, provide information about its consultation process. Those who wish to learn more about this process should contact a company representative directly. Consumers can contact the company via phone or email — both of which can be easily located at the bottom of the company’s main website.

The company also does not seem to provide financing options directly since it has a number of finance partner companies within its network.
KOTA Energy Group does seem to be lacking in terms of the amount and type of information it provides on its main website. After visiting the company’s website, consumers still won’t know the following information:
The information provided on the company’s website may confuse some consumers, especially since the company is a solar broker, not a direct provider. Potential customers should speak with a company representative directly to learn more about its processes and services.
